That’s right, the guy who acts super smart and who seems to have all the answers is now going to ask you for help. (I’m talking about myself, in case you didn’t know!)
So I’ve been trying to market my book, Elithius…and it hasn’t been going so great. Getting the word out is hard, especially because I’m young and haven’t made many connections yet. I basically know what I need to do (network more, get onto social media more, sell ads, etc.), but I don’t know HOW to go about all of this in a smart way.
So, that’s why I’m coming to you.
I’m blessed to be in a community of fellow writers and authors, both aspiring, self-published, and traditionally published. Since I’m in this community, I feel brave enough to ask you: what should I do?
Be honest with me. How did/do you promote YOUR book? Is there a path you recommend me take more than another?
I know my story isn’t trash. I’ve heard it from multiple sources, and honest sources, whether among my family, friends, or fellow writers, that my book is good. It has potential. But I just don’t know how to GET IT OUT THERE.
So I’m wondering if any of you have suggestions?
I’m going to give you a short blurb about my book, the one I use to promote it. I’m doing this only so that you can know what my book is like, so that maybe you can help direct me towards a certain path. (So, basically, I’m not showing this to you for promotional reasons)
His parents abandon him when he’s thirteen. He’s left to care for his little brother and sister. Life is tough. Things can’t seem to get any worse.
But then Evil Itself breaks down the door. It kidnaps his siblings. And It leaves him bleeding out on the floor of his own home.
The Golden Lands, one of the Three Worlds of Elithius, is supposed to be a place of light, peace and happiness. But the Golden Lands hasn’t been such a place for John Hedekira, a jaded, hot-headed sixteen-year-old. Joined by his friends Faith Pinck and Bernard Tanner, John must rescue his brother and sister from their captors…before his siblings can be sacrificed to the ominous God of Death.
With a story that combines the feelings of Harry Potter, the Lord of the Rings, and Percy Jackson, Dominic Sceski brings to life a riveting tale of light versus darkness, magic, friendship, trust, betrayal, forgiveness, and redemption that will leave you on the edge of your seat and desperately yearning for more.
Okay, so this is the basis, the feel, of my story. How would you market it?
I’m just asking you with complete honesty for help…any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much for all you do!!!
